If you are of a certain age, you will remember Don Herbert, aka Mr. Wizard, as the host of a popular educational science show for kids. The series began in 1951 and ran until 1965 airing on NBC. After an almost 20-year hiatus from TV, Mr. Wizard returned with Mr. Wizard’s World which aired on Nickelodeon and then Nick at Night from 1983 to 1995. One thing for sure, Mr. Herbert (the Wizard) was no-nonsense, a total straight shooter, and, if you believe in the power of editing, also kind of a jerk.
Constructed by Diane Bullock and Mike Schuster, their mash up of awkward Mr. Wizard moments is hilarious with refrains of “that’s wrong,” “that not right,” “you don’t seem to have a great amount of confidence,” and “stop it.”
